OUR 2020 SEASON: THE WINDS OF CHANGE

America in the aftermath of World War I was defined by expansive social change that influenced every aspect of life.The Seiberlings  like many Americans, experienced and reacted to the changes happening around them – women’s suffrage, prohibition, an influx of immigrants, rapidly changing technology, a volatile presidential election and evolving fashion and music in a decade fraught with both excess and reform. In a surprisingly familiar reflection of life then and now, Winds of Change in the Manor House features an exhibit that addresses the changes experienced by Akronites in the 1920s -- with a comparison of then to now.

      

In the gardens, the Winds of Change Garden Exhibit celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote. Five talented local female artists have created inventive kinetic sculptures placed through the historic grounds for guests to enjoy.

We invite you to visit and tour this year's very relevant exhibit.   In 2020, all tours are self-guided, masks are required in the Manor House and all other indoor areas.  Masks must also be worn outside when it's not possible to social distance.
